The Big Brits distaste for the hunter-gatherer menu turns to revulsion and, for some, a complete food boycott. There are plenty of calories in camp, mainly mounds of manketti nuts, a high protein and highly calorific bush nut that when meat is scarce can make up the majority of the Bushmen’s diet for weeks of a time. But the Brits won’t eat them – here in the Kalahari Desert a bunch of people who usually eat far too much are in the unaccustomed position of not eating enough. The Ju’/Hoansi bushmen are baffled by the Brits’ picky palates and when the virtual hunger strike sends moods plummeting and tempers flaring tribal elder !Amace steps in to beg his guests to eats, pointing out that the bush food is not poison. Combative Liverpudlian single mum Dionne is at loggerheads with Oxford-educated Martin until mutual self-interest bonds them in the search for a new source of food, grubbing underground for the potato-like Shah and walking miles to set traps for Guinea fowl and Steenbok, an African antelope. But as exhaustion and hunger kick in, both start to question the point of expending energy trying to catch food they don’t believe they’ll want to eat. Then elephant appears on the menu...
